Reliable, rapid chromatographic immunoassay to qualitatively detect antibodies against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Quantity per kit: 40 tests.
Available to order from our subsidiary company Hibernia Medical.
The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is a reliable, rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for qualitative detection of antibodies (IgM and IgG) to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum, plasma or whole blood.
The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test is intended for the use as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS-CoV-2, indicating prior infection. This rapid lateral flow test is intended for professional use in laboratory and near patient-testing environments and qualitatively detects IgM and IgG specific to SARS-CoV-2 in serum, plasma, and whole blood.
Antibody tests are crucial for patient contact tracing, defining previous exposure, and for epidemiological studies. Epidemiological studies are urgently needed to help uncover the spread and burden of disease, in particular, the rate of asymptomatic infections, and to get better estimates on morbidity and mortality. This test may also be used together with molecular tests, like Roche’s cobas ® SARS-CoV-2 PCR test, to aid in the diagnosis of suspected COVID-19 patients. As more is understood about immunity to SARS-CoV-2, it may help to assess who has built up immunity to the virus helping healthcare providers better manage patients.
Testing process for the SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antibody Test
The kit is ready for use and contains all equipment needed to perform a test, with the exception of a pricking device (lancet), which is not included.
A pricking device (lancet) is needed if a blood sample is taken from the finger or ear. Roche recommends to use the “Accu-Chek Safe T Pro Uno or Plus” which can be ordered through the usual channels. Any other pricking device that is able to produce a sample of 20 microliters can be used too.
The following components are needed for a test and included in the kit:
